50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40Thursday was quite a day! It seemed like it lasted forever and I still didn’t get a lot of work done. It was a stay-at-home day for me since I was needing to work on my other businesses. I wanted to take some extra photos for just in case I got called in to jury duty. You would think that playing dress-up all day long would be fun but I can tell you that it can be a real pain in the rump. Trying not to get a picture of the dog taking a crap in the background, making sure that the camera is focused, stand where you don’t cut off your head or your feet, sweat running down your back, sun in your eyes, and is my blonde headed photo bomber around anywhere? 
50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40Before I even started taking photos I hopped in the shower and washed my hair because I had planned on doing a video of my morning skincare routine. That has been requested by several of you and since it is something that I do daily it would be easy to accomplish. At least you think it would be easy but in reality, there was a mishap. I did my routine and videoed it just like normal. Then, last night when I transferred the video from my phone to the computer I discovered that it had cut off before I finished the routine. There was no phone call or any kind of issue, so I am not sure why it cut off but I will try again today and put the video up on Saturday instead of today like I was supposed to. I have learned that you have to be flexible in life. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40 I wore this plaid vest from Cato’s Fashions back in August but I wore it completely different then. You can go here to see that look. I love this look for fall. There is just something about plaid that screams fall to me. I looked on Cato Fashion’s website and even though this exact vest is already sold out, you can still find lots of cute color combinations50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40My earrings are no longer available for purchase. But, the Janalee silver necklace, which is white & gray marbled teardrops on a heavy Venetian silver link, are available. This is the kind of necklace that you can wear with almost anything. I just got in another shipment of jewelry and I can’t wait to show all of it to all of you!!! If you are interested in getting your own Plunder jewelry, then go here and be sure to pick a party with my name in it.
50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40 I HAD to have some new red jeans for fall. Lol! The other pair of reddish jeans that I have are more maroon and I was a pair that was a true red color. I know that I will get a lot of wear with these jeans since the Christmas season is coming soon. I got these in my Trunk Club shipment and they are by NYDJ. These are a high-waist pair and they are machine washable. The website says to order one size down but these are a size 10, which is my normal size, and they fit me fine. You can find them online by going here50 IS NOT OLD | MAD FOR PLAID | FASHION OVER 40If you do not already own a pair of ankle boots then you need to go today and get at least one pair if not two. I admit that when I first started seeing ankle boots that I wasn’t sure if I liked the look but now I am in love with it! They look adorable with pants, jeans, and even dresses. My pair is by Marc Fisher and they are open-toed so that you can see that I coordinated my toenails to my pants. Lol!!!

    I bought this vest right after you showed it in August. I love it. I will need to get red jeans too!

  5. After you showed this vest the first time, I stopped at Cato’s the next time i was in the city and this one was sold out but I picked up the wine/gray colored one and never thought about putting colored jeans with it so thank you for this idea.

    I bought it too, in the fall colors. I’m short and was worried about it being too long. But it’s ok.

  7. The red jeans are great! I want a pair. The booties get a thumbs up too. Great look. You started my day with a chuckle as usual.
